Writing about artwork can be challenging, particularly when applying for shows, grants or other opportunities. Applications often require succinct summaries of complex ideas, and ask for a kind of language that doesn't always feel natural when talking about art.
I have worked as a professional administrator for over four years, writing and editing proposals for Tertiary Education, State and Local Government, Healthcare and other Public Sector areas. These skills have translated into art, with the following successes, either for myself or others:
Creative New Zealand Grants
Local Council Community and/or Arts Grants (Australia)
Crowd funding campaigns
International residencies (including Arteles Art Residency in Finland, and Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris)
Exhibition proposals for municipal galleries
Various artist-run spaces
Through administrative assistance, help can be provided for:
Grant applications, budgets and acquittals
Exhibition proposal applications
Marketing copy and press releases
Artist bio/statement & resumes
Exhibition essays/text accompaniments
Assistance ranges from proof reading and structure to more in-depth consultation to develop ideas. Being an artist myself, I understand financial constraints, so rates are affordable.
